As a total Bible Nerd, sometimes this girl craves some good, solid teaching. I am a huge fan of books on how to be a better woman of God, a better prayer warrior, and just about any other book that teaches me how to grow in my walk with God. However, there is something so fun about grabbing a cup of hot chocolate, notebooks and pens and spreading out all over my desk to study the Word of the Lord.
Therefore, when I saw that John MacArthur had released a book on the Parables of Christ, I was all in. And it did not disappoint.
Parables shows the reader how Jesus used parables to illustrate the mysteries of God’s Kingdom. While MacArthur doesn’t cover every parable, he chooses some of the more prominent ones. He gives us the context in which the parable was given, what the purpose of the parable was, and what it tells us about the Kingdom.
One of the beautiful things about Scripture is, there is so much more to it. You and I can read a set of verses, and think we understand what it means. But if we take the time to really study, dig in, pull the verse apart and really see what God is saying…Friends, the Bible is so very rich. This book will help you see beyond the familiar parable stories to the deep, beautiful doctrine that lies within each one.
Bottom Line: Grab your study notes, clear off your desk, read this book and enjoy the ride.
